It was crowded waaay before the event officially started.  We got there at 5pm and it was packed.  There were several chafing dishes of free food in the back (a sample of Wherehouse appetizers, yum!) and the beers were indeed “sessionable.”  They’re light, and I’ve dubbed them the “drink and drive” beers – but, you know, don’t drink and drive.  I can’t wait to visit the brewery when they finally open to the public in late May.

On Saturday, November 5, Newburgh was host, again, to an amazing live performance of chamber, early and contemporary music at 9-11 Chambers Street. In the second iteration of a series presented by Queen of the Hudson, Katya Mihailova, Aminda Asher, and Martha Cargo performed pieces by Astor Piazzolla, Belinda Reynolds, Libby Larsen, Sofia Gubaidulina, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Franz Schubert, Sergei Rachmaninov, and Joseph Haydn. The spare space of the artist’s loft was the perfect foil to the warmth and richness of the music.  The atmosphere was comfortable and casual, flowing with reasonably priced beer and wine and complimentary snacks.
